Raven's Challenge 95
Winter just seems to drag on!Chief Ican called County Social services to see if they could help with the vagrant but they said since he didn’t live in the county he was outside of any program they had.
Then he called County Psychological Services but they said they had only one therapist and he was booked solid besides the man needed a local residence.
So Chief Ican went and sat down with Mrs. Trumble and they came up with what they hoped would be a workable solution.
They faxed statements from Pastor Joan and the secretary to the judge in Crystal Falls. And then E-mailed pictures taken before they got him the new clothes.
He asked the judge to commit Gerald G. Vanderbolt III to a psychiatric facility for thirty days of observation.
The judge then faxed back a copy of the order promising to send the original immediately.
Mr. Trumble contacted the “New Beginning Psychiatric Facility” in Smallwood, Texas. She agreed to pay all the expenses and asked for a full evaluation and a treatment program.
All that was left was to send Gerald to Texas.

The Ongoing Adventures of Agent 012
Agent 012 was back to work and sat through two hours of viewing five mandalas left by the mandala bomber. He felt like the confused inspector in the Pink Panther movies. He could find no common theme from mandala to mandala. In one plates of what could be lasagne are interspersed with white field lillies while in another tomatoes circle what looks like a snow mobile and in a third common salutations are mixed with frowning faces.. Every one of them looks like something out of an alternate reality DVD.
Agent 012 was told there is a lot of pressure from frantic AIG executives whose offices were being blown up to get the bomber caught. As it was they were seeing bombers hiding in the shadows all over the buildings.. They had stopped playing music in the halls because it only seemed to add to the aggravation.
Two hours later Agent 012 found himself in a tiny office in the nearest AIG building talking to the highly over paid executive. When he entered the room the man was on the phone saying something about grounds for divorce and not wavering in his determination to go through with it.
When he hung up Agent 012 ignored the call and asked about the explosions. The executive felt it was the fault of the media which had everybody all stirred up just because they got government help and paid their executives well. Fox News even made them look evil. He had a file cabinet full of threatening letters Agent 012 requested that letters be given to the Agency.
It looked like this was going to be a difficult case.
Mega Challenge Alternate Reality At LastAfter years of aggravation and frantic searching he had found the doorway to an alternate reality. Following a local legend he had ridden a snow mobile to this cave high in the mountains. As the shadows lengthened outside the cave he found this huge room with a doorway in the middle. You could walk around the doorway and it made no sense for it to be there. He played his electric torch over all of its parts. It just made no sense.
So he opened the door. He expected to see the other side of the room but instead he saw a countryside with no snow and it was daytime not night. He could hear music but it was different somehow than music he was used to. He looked for a bit and then he stepped through the door. Near him was a tomato plant with tomatoes the size of basketballs and the music was coming from the plant. Looking down the hill he saw what looked like a field of fifty foot high lilies with such thick stems you would need a chainsaw to cut them down. As he watched a bird that looked like a flying dinosaur flew over and one of the lilies opened , reached up, and ate it. This was clearly a different reality. He put a mini DVD in his camera and began to film everything. He needed evidence that the world existed and the DVD was it.
When he decided he had enough evidence he turned to return to his world only to realize there was no door. It had to be there somewhere but he couldn’t tell where. He would be there forever.
Mini Challenge Home Again?He had no idea how long he had been there. He knew that the tomatoes gave out an odor that kept predators away and he knew some of the edible things around him. He was surviving and still looking for the door.
Suddenly he saw an arm waving in the air. He rushed and grabbed the hand which then pulled him back through the doorway.
“Well fancy meeting you here Pink Panther”, she said.
Pink Panther was Angela’s pet name for him. Of all the salutations he might have heard this was the best.
“How did you find me”, he asked.
“ There was a GPS tracking device on the snowmobile and it got me to the cave. I figured if you could return you would have so I didn’t go through the door. When you didn’t return as scheduled I had to throw our a perfectly good pan of lasagne” she said. “ In some states that’s grounds for divorce” “What do you mean grounds for divorce “ he asked his voice wavering.
“Just because we’ve been married five years is no reason to think it can’t happen” she replied.
“Whose President of the United States , he asked.
“ Why Lincoln 16, the first clone to get elected in any country..
“This isn’t my reality “ he said “ I’m not even married”
